Cooking Live in support of Family Reach last night was one of the most amazing events I’ve ever done.IMG_7686 (600x450)IMG_6875

Yes it was cool just cooking with Ming and Grant Achatz and Takashi and Burke.  But what made it so amazing is the foundation itself.

Family Reach helps families by taking some of the stress and financial burden away so that parents can spend time with their children affected with cancer.  Helping with car payments or heating bills that build up as parents leave work to spend time with their child.  Just amazing.

Just a night where I was so happy to be a chef and be able to just cook with some chef friends and help make a difference in the lives of many families.


Plus getting to eat food from some of the best chefs around. I think I ate 10 of Grant’s truffle explosions. And leave it to Ming to do something awesome with simple rice. Yum.
